It was a beautiful January morning with sunny skies and
temps in the upper 30s and rising.  There were lots of
new runners this month, as many people were implementing
their New Year's resolutions.

This month's most improved runner was Eli Ricca, who was
3:24 under his handicap.  Eli received a Nielson Challenge
shirt, donated by EON Studios.  He'll also be getting a
call to appear on the Tonight Show, but he has to run to
their studio.

We'll see everybody again in February, same time, same channel.
